Telstra Mail Servers not accepting outbound mail

Answered

My outbound email is being blocked. The message I am getting from my Mac Mail when trying to send a message from mail.bigpond.com is:

 

nschwcmgw08p Bigpond Outbound (OB105. Connection refused. 58.164.129.206 is listed on the Exploits Block List (XBL). Please visit http://spanhaus.org/xbl for more information.

 

I searched for the IP address and here is the search result - http://en.utrace.de/ip-address/58.164.129.206 and it appears Telstra's Brisbane server has been flagged by Spamhaus - http://www.spamhaus.org/faq/section/Spamhaus%20XBL#99

 

This has been an intermittent problem for a couple of days, but now it is happening all the time.

 

What's the best way to fix this?

 

Thanks!

ADSL? Turn off the router for a minute or so. Unless of course you're on a fixed ip.
